A clip show, "The Best Items of Mr. Bean", was broadcast on 15 December 1995, the other episode, "Hair by Mr. Bean of London", has not been broadcast until 2006 on Nickelodeon.

Based on a character originally manufactured by Atkinson when he was studying for his master's degree at Oxford University, the series follows the exploits of Mr. Bean, explained Atkinson as "a child within a grown man's body", in solving various problems presented by everyday tasks and often causing disruption in the process.

Bean rarely speaks, and the largely physical humour from the series hails from his interactions with other people with his fantastic unusual methods to situations. The series was influenced by physical performers such as Jacques Tati and comic actors from silent films.

During its five-year run, the series gained large UK audience figures, including 18.74 million for that 1991 episode "The Challenge with Mr. Bean".

The series has got a number of international awards, like the Rose d'Or. The show may be purchased in 245 territories worldwide and it has inspired an animated cartoon spin-off, two movies, as well as an appearance in the London 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony.
